11 New Kickstarter Projects You Should Probably Fund ASAP
You didn’t think we’d let 2014 get going without a nod to the newest Kickstarter projects, did you? Last week was all about CES, but now we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming in the world of inventions and innovations. Kickstarter’s got a whole new bag of tricks to kick off 2014, and here are 11 such tricks we’re thinking about funding.
2. Declan Squared: Gentleman geeks all around the land will sure sing the praises of Declan Squared, a collection of microfiber pocket squares and handkerchiefs! With tons of handsome (and pretty) patterns, these are great for guys and gals alike. A pledge of $12 gets you two of your very own squares, as soon as May 2014.
3. Moment Lenses: Ready to upgrade your iPhoneography? We’ve seen lots of lenses on the market, but this one is definitely one we want to try. The glass to create the lens is made using the same recipe that is used for designing professional cinema glass for HD film. The lens doesn’t distort your images at all, just sharpens the lines, heightens, the colors, and gives you a better representation of whatever it is you’re capturing.
4. Popcord: This simple gadget fits right on your keys and lets you charge your chosen device via any USB you can find. Easy peasy.
6. Foobler: Is your pooch a hunter, gatherer, and forager? Me too! Enter the Foobler, a puzzle feeder designed to entertain your pup for up to nine hours with a single charge. It’s a self-loading puzzle feeder with six timer activated pods and it delivers a full day’s worth of regular kibble or treats for them to enjoy. We can’t wait to try it.
8. FRM / FRAME: Yes, this is an iPad wall dock, but what’s great about it is that it’s well-designed, displays your iPad beautifully, and lets you charge it up while on display. It’s not the first of its kind, but it looks better than most we’ve seen on the market.
10. The Chocolatier Artisan Chocolates: We recommend funding this New Zealand chocolatier if only to fill the world with more chocolates that look like gemstones. We need whatever mold was used to make these!
11. The Floyd Leg: Finally, an invention we need… now! The Floyd Leg lets you turn any flat surface into a table using an age old device — the clamp. It’s great for folks who move around a lot and can’t commit to a certain desk. It’s also great for putting together a table in a pinch if one too many guests RSVP to your next dinner party.
